After 2010's 7th Symphony, the Finnish cello masters Apocalyptica are currently finishing their 8th studio album to be released in early 2015, followed by an extensive live tour. For the upcoming album, the band is working with Franky Perez as exclusive singer on the vocal tracks - this time not only during production, but for the whole cycle including the tour.

Following the release of their last album, the band took a break from the standard album cycle in 2013 to pursue a range of musical projects. Earlier this year, Apocalyptica's latest project Apocalyptic Symphony marked their first ever tour with a classical ensemble, the Avanti! Chamber Orchestra.

"We're in perfect shape", Eicca Toppinen states, "and still hungry for the future of making music together. If you want to try new things, you'll never know where you end up. But we're motivated and our heads are full of fresh ideas."

Perez released his debut in 2003, later teaming up with System Of A Down's Daron Malakian and John Dolmayan as Scars On Broadway. In 2009, Perez was announced on vocals of Slash's solo band, followed by collaborations with Dave Kushner (Velvet Revolver) as well as Scott Shriner (Weezer), Joey Castillo (Queens Of The Stone Age) and Dave Warren (The Simpsons) as Pusher Jones. After being honored as vocalist for The Doors at the L.A. Sunset Strip Music Festival, he released his latest solo album Addict in 2013.
